Project Description

2007 Exterior Wall Repairs

In October 2007 Albatech Building Restoration Inc. started 2007- Exterior Wall Repairs Program.

The building located at 26 Bramsteele Road in Brampton, Ontario is a single storey industrial and commercial building. The structural system of this building is steel and concrete block construction with a clay brick veneer.  The concrete block foundation wall descends four to six feet below grade to concrete footings. Asphalt drivelines and parking areas are located around the building, as well as areas of landscaping on the east and south sides of the building

The 2007 project started with the mobilization, installation of hoarding, dust protection and set up of the site and generally involved:

  • Localized removal of the lowest two courses of brick around the building perimeter and replacement with new cast-in-place concrete curb (approximately 550 lineal feet).
  • Localized removal and replacement of all damaged and deteriorated foundation wall concrete masonry units (approximately 300 units).
  • Localized replacement of deteriorated bricks (approximately 640 units).
  • Removal of asphalt, overburden material and excavation (4 to 6 feet deep) around the building perimeter.
  • Installation of new 2-ply hot-rubberized waterproofing system complete with new protection board on foundation wall.
  • Backfilling of excavation with new free drainage Granular B & A material around the building perimeter (approximately 550 lineal feet).
  • Installation of new asphalt paving adjacent to foundation wall where removed to facilitate repairs. Installation of soft landscaping at non-asphalt areas.
  • Installations of new flashing overtop of brick window ledges.

The project currently substantially completed and stopped due to unstable cold winter weather conditions with the remaining portion to install sod at non-asphalt areas.
